The Skoda Scala is the brand’s first car based on the MQB A0 platform, and it marks a new era for the Czech automaker's design language. The compact hatchback transfers the sensational design language of the Skoda Vision RS concept study into a production vehicle for the first time.
On the outside, the Scala features full-LED headlights and tail lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, ‘ŠKODA’ in block lettering across the tailgate - a first a production Skoda and a panoramic glass roof. This particular example (below) isn’t specified with the elongated back glass and block lettering options. 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit, 9.2-inch Amundsen touchscreen infotainment system with a glass front and a 64-GB SSD hard drive and Suedia microfibre seat covers are some of the interior highlights.
The Skoda Scala is 4,362 mm long, 1,793 mm wide and 1,471 mm high. It has a 2,649 mm wheelbase. It has a segment-leading boot volume of 467 litres, expandable to 1,410 litres by folding down the rear seats. There are five engine options: 95 PS 1.0 TSI petrol, 115 PS 1.0 TSI petrol, 150 PS 1.5 TSI petrol, 115 PS 1.6 TDI diesel and 90 PS 1.0 G-TEC petrol-CNG. 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG are the transmission choices.
In India, Skoda is looking at launching the Scala as a brand-building product. If it decides to launch, it may do so only in 2023 or later.
